Trying to be perfect all the time can be exhausting. That’s why great results amount to the things you do most of the time. That’s why diets which offer “cheat days” are the only diets that most people choose to stick with, that’s why people miss some days going to the gym, that’s why people need days off of work, that’s why 90% is still considered to be an “A”, that’s why perfection isn’t achievable, and that’s why mistakes are teachable moments.The only way to reach success is to give yourself room for error.

Can you imagine sticking to perfection every second of the day? Burnout is right around the corner, because you cannot keep up the pace of perfection for long. You can try all you want to, but it’s just not possible. You weren’t created to be perfect, and if someone comes across as perfect, their image is a facade.
So, a good idea is to take one thing at a time, and build on previous successes. What’s one thing that you can improve on? Start there and show up when you say you will show up. If you know that you will only show up one day a week, then begin there. Build to two, and so on. Being realistic in your efforts is the only way to become better.
